Carol Green reports, "FRL has been busy this fall. Open reserve shelves and tables uncluttered with carrel tops are popular. After a rocky initial period, our new copier is functioning reasonably well and most users have received new copy cards.

There are three ways to access licensed databases and other restricted tools from your home computer or other non UW browsers.
1. Use the UW Connectivity kit to dial in to the UW and sign in with your UWNetID.
2. Use the Libraries Proxy Server from the Information Gateway (select "Starting Points", scroll down to item 5 and click onto the Proxy Server). Using the barcode on the back of your Husky Card and a Libraries PIN you can thus gain access through your independent service provider.
3. Use the new MyUW feature from the main UW home page. Under the "Information For" heading enter either the Faculty/Staff area or the Students area and select the MyUW icon in the upper left of the screen. Enter your UWNetID user name and password. Library databases are under the "References" tab on the MyUW page.
Local horticulturist Roy Davidson (author of Lewisias, published by Timber Press) died recently, leaving the Miller Library his impressive collection of horticulture books.
The Library is in the midst of its year-end matching grant campaign to help complete this year's $30,000 matching grant from the Miller Charitable Foundation.
Staff is busy with new programs and improvements, as the library received word that the Miller Charitable Foundation plans to fully fund the 2001 grant request. New furniture and display fixtures are being purchased, a professional is being hired to redesign the Web page, and plans are being made to start a Plant Answer Line (like the Quick Information Lines at public libraries).
